If Thanksgiving is a time to relax with family and make an ideologically questionable return to our ethically unforgivable Americana roots, what better way to spend the Saturday after the holiday than by catching A Prairie Home Companion broadcasting live from Town Hall? Tonight, Keillor and a cast that includes musical guests Dick and Judy Hyman, Uri Sharlin, and Heather Masse look to inject some of that folksy, Lake Wobegon charm into the five boroughs. It will be an uphill battle, particularly after the loss of sound-effects wizard Tom Keith, but that certainly won’t stop them from trying.
